"I have macular degeneration and glaucoma,” the Roseanne show alum told the news site of the medical condition that ultimately leaves you blind. “I just try and enjoy vision as much as possible, you know? Living it up. My dad had it, too,” Barr explained, adding that she’ll miss reading but has thought about hiring someone to “read for me and read to me.”
Now this is what ticks me off, there are millions of people that have macular degeneration and will go blind from it. So if OCATA has the cure why aren't they pushing harder to get it to market? Afterall they've proven it's safe, and it's helped improve vision in more than half of their trial patients. Hell, if they have to go to Mexico to give injections, so be it. Would someone please wake Dr Wotton up!
Please excuse me for ranting so early in the morning.
Joe, nice dilution analysis, but the reason for dilution, being OCATA's only solution, is that they've never made a profit. And they have never been held accountable for not doing so, yet they still receive pay raises and free stock annually for mismanaging the company. Must be nice having a job where you never produce anything, but shareholder loss, but of course if you have conscience it's not such a good thing.
"he reacts and spends his day for my amusement"
Cole, I know that Deme at times cusses like a drunken sailor, and could be easily mistaken for a he, but he's a she.
And next come's his raise, can't wait to see that one. And if he were hired to destroy shareholder value, he's doing a good job of it, and deserves a raise.
"just giving the fruit what he wants "attention""
Deme, I love how politically incorrect you always are, I guess it's because bigotry is in your DNA.
And why are you so obsessed with coldpeckers? Is it due to your frigidity?
"In my opinion they are extremely lonely introverts and this MB is the only place they can feel bold enough to receive attention albeit means hiding behind a keyboard and monitor."
Jnich, I believe that you've just describe yourself, albeit that you're a sheep not a protester.
....if they don't wake up soon!
"Canada and Japan Leading Innovation in Regenerative Medicine;
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canada and Japan are taking distinctly different but complementary paths in the development of a regenerative medicine industry within their borders. While their paths may differ, their activities are having a profound impact on the future of a global industry that is poised for exponential growth.
Japan's commitment to regenerative medicine leadership has been fuelled by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's vision for revitalizing the country's economy. That economic revival includes policies to support the development of a robust, world-leading regenerative medicine industry in Japan, including US$1-billion in funding for stem cell research over 10 years.
While the Japanese initiatives are in part driven by national economic interests, they are fundamentally about bringing new medicines to a significantly and rapidly aging Japanese demographic.
"Japan is looking to establish leadership in the regenerative medicine industry by encouraging domestic innovation and enticing foreign companies to develop products in Japan by bringing foreign therapeutics to the Japanese market," states Shinichi Muto, Chief Japan Representative for Euro Pacific Canada, Inc. "The mission of our nation's leadership is to pave the way for real, practical, breakthroughs in regenerative medicine. My firm is actively working with companies outside Japan, like RepliCel Life Sciences and others, to build three-way partnerships between Japanese investors, strategic partners, and therapeutic developers."
"The regenerative medicine and cell therapy field is changing rapidly around the world," says Michael May, Chief Executive Officer of the Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine (CCRM) in downtown Toronto. "
Strike up the band, they finally completed a task they were supposed to complete 3 - 4 months ago, but at least it's positive news.
Beachfreddy, did you ever sell a used car to Deme? Afterall, she lives in NYC, and is a slumlord, which I believe is a notch below used car salesman.
.....which tells me that even the sheep have given up hope that this thing will eventually work.
But I am still hanging onto my shares, like a Good Captain I am going down with the ship.
Thats a lot of NO's, but notice that OCATA management did not say NO to pay raises, along with tons of of free stock, all at the expense of the shareholders.
Freddy, that all sounds good, but "SHOW ME THE MONEY!"
"all hell will break out against a profile of visual impairment diseases."
You'd better hope it's OCATA thats doing the hell breaking, because at the speed they're moving(no products after 20 years) it's an iffy proposition at best for them. And they say it themselves in the recent 10-K.
Thanks to the Good Dr Wotton. I wonder what he has up his sleeve next? Oh, I know, much more dilution, it's his one and only solution, at least until he negotiates a partnership, or sells.
"This has been going on for 10 years here"
Actually the SMD trials began about 4 1/2 years ago, they went public a little over 10 years ago, and they have reported results in the Lancet Medical Journal, but apparently nobody in the medical field was impressed by the article, not even OCATA themselves.
But my question is; If they really have cure for AMD & SMD, why aren't those afflicted by these diseases speaking up, especially those that are nearing blindness? It's all very confounding to me, but so is quantum mechanics.
